Universal Reduced Fare Card


BATA is participating in a pilot program with the Michigan Department of Transportation to offer a special reduced fare designation (sticker) to seniors and people with disabilities so they can receive reduced fare almost anywhere they travel in Michigan. To receive a Universal Reduced Fare Card sticker simply bring your BATA reduced fare card to BATA's Hall Street Transfer Station and ask the transfer station attendant for a Universal Reduced Fare Card Sticker. More details about the program are below and on MDOT's website.


What is it?

The Universal Reduced Fare Card is a special card offered free of charge that allows seniors and people with disabilities to use participating transit providers throughout the state. They can receive the provider’s reduced fare without completing additional applications or paperwork.
